Goofs

While the exact year is not mentioned, at one point the president is referred to as Teddy Roosevelt, which would place the year from 1901 to 1909. Dennis Farina's character has a Colt semi-automatic pistol known as a Model 1903. The Model 1903 looks very much like the more popular Model 1911, which began production two years after Roosevelt left office. See more »

Is this really Bonanza ????
26 May 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

In the 1990's, several attempts were made to revive the Bonanza franchise, with little success. This film features the great Ben Johnson, Jack Elam and even Leonard Nimoy as Frank James ! Mike Landon Jr and Dirk Blocker (sons of the original Little Joe & Hoss) also appear.

Despite the interesting cast of veterans & newcomers, the movie ultimately fails to deliver the goods. Lorne Greene, Blocker & Landon are especially missed. Unlike the series of Gunsmoke TV films of the same era, this film series fails to recapture the excitement and collegiality of the original TV show. I did like the performance here by Nimoy....... a nice change of pace.

I rarely fail to recommend westerns with Ben Johnson & Jack Elam ...... but this one may be for avid fans only.
